Hello Brides!! I  just started trying to find a (FREE) site where I create a custom wedding website. I began attempting to use mywedding.com because of the cool  app that can be connected with your guests and site butttttt i dont like how i cant place pictures of the resort and adjust them where i would like. I dont like the knot.com layouts either... Ive tried that one too :(

 

Does anyone one know how i can do this on weddings.com OR a better site to use?

I gave up trying to find a free site and ended up paying for one. The free ones didn't do what I wanted and I didn't find a template that I liked.  :(

 

I ended up using weddingwoo.com, which gave tons of flexibility to customize. I am really happy with it. Yes, it was $50 for a year, but it's so little in the scheme of the total wedding cost, I figured it didn't matter too much. Here is our site: http://erinandjeff.weddingwoo.com/. You can use any photo you like for the background. Most people use engagement photos, but since we didn't do an engagement shoot, I used a photo I took during a previous trip to the Mayan Riviera.

 

I hope you find a good free one, though! Please keep us posted.

@racht33 -Thank you :) I tried lots of free and paid sites. I have about 5 half finished wedding web sites out there LOL. This was the one that allowed me the most flexibility to do what I wanted. But I did spend quite a lot of time on it. I would say it probably takes longer to set this up than some of the canned ones where you are more locked into set pages and a specific template.

Sorry I'm not help. I used mywedding.com and really loved how easy it was to use and how much it did. I only had one or two pics of the resort so didn't need the functionality to move pics around :( hopefully the site suggested to you works!!!! Good luck :)

I found the list of the sites I tried. I'm not sure which ones are free and which ones have a cost, but maybe you'll see some new ones here to check out:

  • Wedding Wire
  • MyWedding.com
  • The Knot
  • WedInvite (more an invitation tool than a web site)
  • eWedding (very limited template options)
  • AppyCouple ($35)
  • Wedding Window
  • Wedding Woo ($50)

I used the knot. Wasn't overly crazy about the templates available, but I liked that it was only $20 for a year and I got my own domain without having the pesky provider name in my domain. It made it alot easier for people to remember.

    I used weddingwire but definitely not many opportunities for customizing pictures. I just wanted something quick and easy and that would allow me to keep track of RSVPs on there to group the tables later.

     

    My mom has a business and she has a free website through weebly.com. It's free to create a simple website, which is definitely more than you will need. You might have to pay for the domain name though, I'm not sure how that works. Anyways, she loves it and it's pretty easy to catch on. It might take you a few hours of playing around until you get the hang of it but I'm sure you'll be happy with it :)

    We used mywedding.com 4 years ago and it worked out fine for us. It's funny because I didn't have any trouble putting pics on it or moving them how I wanted. But at my age 4 years ago is taxing on my memory..... so it's likely I'm remembering it all wrong!!
